Los Angeles Kings Fantasy Spin

Jonathan Quick allowed three goals on 40 shots in Sunday's 4-1 road loss against the New York Rangers. Quick has lost five straight starts in regulation, and he is winless over his past eight outings (0-7-1). Overall he slipped to 11-22-3 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .895 save percentage across his 36 appearances. With the team trading Jack Campbell to the Toronto Maple Leafs, it's sink or swim with Quick, while Cal Petersen gives him a breather.

Colorado Avalanche Fantasy Spin

Philipp Grubauer allowed three goals on 38 shots in a 3-2 loss against the Capitals on Thursday night. The Avalanche took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission, however the Capitals subsequently scored two powerplay goals to draw the score even before netting the game-winner on a deflection with just over two minutes remaining in regulation. Grubauer was also beat by a deflected puck on the game-tying goal. It was an unfortunate result for the 28-year old goaltender who had a solid performance against his former team. His record in 2019-20 is now 18-12-4 which is accompanied by a 2.65 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.

Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Kings are just 28-58 in their last 86 games and have dropped 53 of their last 75 games when they’re listed as an underdog.

Colorado

The Avalanche have won five of their last six games and are 6-1 in their last seven games when facing an opponent like L.A. that owns a win percentage below .400.

Our Prediction

The under is 5-0 in the Kings’ last five games coming off a win, is a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games played on Saturday and is 6-2-1 in their last nine games overall. On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Avalanche’s last five games and has cashed in all four of Colorado’s last four games when playing on only one day of rest.
